How to celebrate Christmas on a beach
Posted November 14, 2018 06:30:53 You can get your Christmas shopping done this year in style at this year’s beach.
The National Parks and Wildlife Service is hosting a “sunny-side-up” holiday on the popular Sunshine Coast.
The holiday will be held at Sandgate Beach, about 10 kilometres south of Cairns, on November 15.
It will run until 1:00am, and will feature a day of fun and activities including a traditional bonfire, horse racing, face painting and even a horse race.
National Parks and Waterfalls manager Chris Dutton said the holiday was designed to be a “very special day” for all of the parks and waters in Queensland.
“We’re going to try and get everyone out to enjoy it and to really enjoy what they’re doing here,” he said.
“You can get to the beach, you can enjoy the beach and you can also enjoy the wildlife.”
He said there was no charge for the holiday.
“If you have a holiday card, you’ll be able to spend a lot more money on this, and we have to look at all the options and whether that’s in the best interests of the whole park,” he added.
“But there’s no charge to the park for it.”
The theme for this year will be “SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNNINGS”.
The National Park Service said the theme will be inspired by the Sunshine Coast’s unique weather patterns, the seasonal seasons, the “unique environment” of the area, and the people who live and work there.
